In the dark corners of strip clubs all across the country, traffickers loom.
Strip clubs are breeding grounds for trafficking — its disguise even sometimes fools the women working in them. Violence and criminal action run rampant in strip clubs across the United States. On one hand, there is cause for excitement because many girls have been set free.
Some of the girls will turn to prostitution. Others will drive farther away to other clubs, either in Grand Rapids or in surrounding cities like Kalamazoo or Lansing.
Even fewer will decide to leave the life completely. Despite the uneasiness that this situation brings, a strip club has officially closed in the city of Grand Rapids.
According to Wood TV8, demolition of the building is set to take place this fall to allow for the new developments. There were only three strip clubs in Grand Rapids, which is quite a small considering the population density of this city as a whole.
Pray that God would lead them to places of joy and peace — out of the sex industry. Pray for the ones who do turn to other strip clubs or pimps in Grand Rapids — for their safety and protection in these dark times.
Pray that they would find an alternate way out of the sex industry. Become a Circle of Protection Donate give. Volunteer act.
